Welcome TO THE GARNER-HAYFIELD-VENTURA
school nutrition program!
LOCAL FOODS SERVED TO GHV STUDENTS
Thanks to grant funding from the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, GHV’s Nutrition Program has partnered with North Iowa Fresh to receive local produce and yogurt to serve our students. GHV received $3,000 to be used toward the purchase of locally produced food. Local apples, broccoli, cauliflower, peppers, tomatoes and yogurt have already been used in student meals. Locally grown squash, carrots and potatoes will also be incorporated in the lunch menus this fall.
Additional funding was awarded to purchase equipment and supplies needed increase procurement from local food hubs. The Nutrition Program is using these funds to update a prep sink area as well as purchase additional knives, slicing blades and other small equipment to make it easier to clean, cut and store the produce.
FREE MEALS FOR ALL ENROLLED STUDENTS
Breakfast and Lunch are available at no charge to all GHV students now through the end of December, or until USDA funds run out. Only complete reimbursable student meals are free. There is a charge for individual cartons of milk or A la carte items for students and staff meals.
